    Is the bulge in the seat tube symmetrical and even? It could be an externally butted tube and the seatpost may be the right size and it is just stuck.

    I'm in Oklahoma. My wife and I were at the grocery store about a month ago and I saw a car with a tandem on a rack. Being interested in each and every bike I see, I made sure to get a good look and...

    The extensive review is what got me interested in the Pangea but I remember him saying that was the largest size Co-Motion makes.

    The 730 is a 21" (53.5cm) frame and I suspect that I would actually be happier with a 23" frame. I rode the exact same year, make and model 730 in a 19" size from 1995 to 2007, never once realizing...

    Thanks!

    Mine is a 1995 model and I think there were several years that had this geometry. The later 90's model Multitracks had chainstays lengthened to 44.5cm and the fork rake increased to 50mm,...

    I finally got to my ultimate poor man's Rivendell. After this, it's either going to be a 26" Surly LHT or custom frameset.

    This is a 700c Trek Multitrack that I've converted to 26" wheels. I...

    I'm glad this experience can be a teaching moment for some of us. I've been examining the old bottom bracket and not only is it nasty, it's gritty. There is no play in the spindle but spinning it,...

    Anyone have a Co-Motion Pangea, particularly a 58cm model? This bike has moved to the top of my "want" list and the only really good photos I can find are of a much bigger model. I would like to...

    By backwards, Mean the bottom bracket cartridge itself was in the left side of the frame and the ring was in the right side. It's been pointed out that this is normal for some BB's and maybe the...

    OK, I had assumed that all cartridge bottom brackets were installed the same way.

    I still think it's crazy that the LBS that built my newer bike did such a lousy job. I've probably put less...

    Bottom Bracket woes.....unbelievable!

    I've been riding a 1995 Trek that I bought second-hand about two years ago. For the past couple of days, I've been noticing a "click" every time the left crank moves thru a certain point. I took...

    I would never have thought of the expander being an issue but it makes sense given the reduced thickness in the threaded section. Thanks for that tip!

    Swapping threaded forks

    My Rockhopper has a head tube that is 112 mm long.

    My Multitrack has a head tube that is 101mm long.

    As an experiment, I want to put the Rockhopper fork on the Multitrack. Both of the...

    That's a very nice set-up!! What size is your frame? I'm guessing an 18" (medium) but the sloping top-tubes make it hard to tell. Also, do you know your saddle height above the bottom bracket? ...

    Another Bottom bracket question

    I took a Takagi triple crankset off a bike with a 68mm x 124mm bottom bracket. The bike was from 1983-84 and probably had rear spacing of 126mm or so.

    I removed the inner and outer chainrings and...

    My 1995 Trek 730 also had a riveted crankset (Alivio...not bottom of the barrel) would require the whole thing to be replaced.
